This 1.44-inch display breakout is an effective and ideal way to add a small, colorful, and bright display to most electronics projects. The module display works with 4-wire SPI to communicate and provides its own pixel-addressable frame buffer. Thus this display module used with every kind of microcontroller. Even with a very small one with low memory and few pins available.
The 1.44″ display provides a resolution of 128×128 color pixels. Certain low-cost displays like “Nokia 6610” and similar LCD displays, operating at CSTN type and thus have poor color and slow refresh. In such displays, the TFT display is a better replacement. The heart of the TFT driver ST7735 driver IC. It is capable of displaying full 16-bit color using our library code. ST7735 driver ic features high reliability and stable performance by a simple adjustment and also compatible with the 5110 interfaces. This 1.44 inch TFT LCD Color Screen Module with SPI Interface has 128 x 128 resolution and 262 colors. This TFT color screen offers a better effect than all other small CSTN screen.
The TFT display board soldered onto (it uses a delicate flex-circuit connector) PCB breakout in the module, as well as an ultra-low-dropout. A built-in level shifter absent in this 1.44inch display, so its Instructed to use the only 3.3V. Highly recommended to use a node MCU because it provides only 3.3v. In case if we are using a 5v microcontroller like the Arduino UNO, MEGA, Using a level shifter offers you the acceptable voltage needed to work the LCD without damaging it.
